Last night I attended the J.J. Millican Ethics Symposium at my alma mater, Oklahoma Christian University. This year’s speaker was Hannibal B. Johnson, who is an accomplished lawyer, writer, leader, and speaker. He is also widely recognized as the premiere expert on the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921, and this was the topic of his speech at the symposium.
Johnson’s speech was a powerful educational experience, as many of us in the audience did not know much about the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. This is a shame because, as Johnson pointed out, if we don’t know our past and learn from our past, we will keep making the mistakes we made in the past.
So Johnson is spearheading many efforts to teach this historical event so that we can create a brighter future for all people.
This is an event you should know about.
Johnson has written a book on the subject that you can order here.
And here’s a 10-minute video about the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921…
